Alliant Credit Union closes two branches

By CBJ News Staff

Alliant Credit Union says it has decided not to reopen branches in the Alliant Tower at 200 First St. SE, Cedar Rapids, and inside MercyOne at 250 Mercy Drive, Dubuque, which have been closed due to COVID-19 precautions since March 18.

In a notice to members, Alliant Credit Union said its remaining Cedar Rapids branch at 1305 First Ave. SE is positioned strategically to serve all its members, and members in Dubuque will be served from its other locations at 1200 Associates Drive and 1402 White St. ATMs will remain in place at the Alliant Tower and at MercyOne.

The decision was made by the credit union’s board of directors after much deliberation, president and CEO Mike Moroney said in a news release.

“With more members choosing to do their banking online, and fewer members now visiting brick-and-mortar locations, ACU has focused more heavily on our electronic banking services including ATMS, our Mobile App, and the new SPARK! e-bill pay system,” Mr. Moroney said in the notice to members. He said the credit union is focusing on its mission to serve members efficiently.

The credit union also operates branches in Burlington and Madison, Wisconsin. CBJ
